Edge of Grace — A Fierce Awakening to Love

Edge of Grace rattles conceptual constructs of trancendence, normative or a perfect state of enlightenment. Prajna takes us to the messy edges of paradox but doesn’t leave us there. She walks us through the full embrace of our humanity for meaningful engagement in life with fierce love. 

“So good, so readable and vivid, such a page turner!” ~ Dr. S Roberts


“There is magic in Prajna’s voice — the breathtaking honest telling of a dramatic human story. The moving, uplifting, cleansing, surging power that makes you feel you’ll never be the same again!”

~Sarah Tavner, BBC Documentary Producer

“Prajna offers us a moving story of one woman’s profound commitment to mothering, awakening and love. Her fierce dedication to follow her own feminine wisdom and truth is so inspiring. Her story shines with courage, beauty, authenticity and redemption.”

—Lisa Schrader, Founder of AwakeningShakti.com

“This is the story of a Spiritual BadAss! It’s impressive when the gurus and yogis of the world can attain peace by sitting in lotus position in a cave somewhere … But when you can attain true peace and equanimity with the Herculean challenges Prajna has faced — now THAT’s a Spiritual BadAss!”

—Sonika Tinker & Christian Pedersen, Founders of loveworksforyou.com

 “I devoured Edge of Grace in two days. I found Prajna’s true story to be profoundly inspiring, beautifully written and a total page-turner. It’s been a little while since I was so totally captivated by a book.”

—Eleanor Tara, Founder, Vedic Astrologer and Healing Musician 

Deepest respect and appreciation for Prajna’s honest, vulnerable, wise and luminous journey, It is an invitation of the highest order with deep insight and transformative power. 

—Isaac Shapiro, Author of It Happens By Itself and Burning Questions 


“I move to the narrow edge of the cliff to jump, baby around my middle. The question, Why? bellows from a knot in my gut, even though I have known for many years that this is not the question of a spiritual warrior. This is not the life I can live…”  Prajna at the Edge of Grace


“Prajna shows us that challenges are opportunities for profound growth toward rock-solid realization and true spiritual maturity.”

Rick Archer, Founder and host of Buddha at the Gas Pump (listen to the full interview below)

“Edge of Grace draws you in and doesn’t let go. A real-life page-turner. Emotional, difficult, joyous, all in one. Like life but turned up several notches…. to the ultimate happy ending — Acceptance for All of Life As It Is!”

—Anatta Campbell, Author of The Ordinary Buddha 

“Edge of Grace pulls every heart string imaginable. Prajna shares her journey with transparent sincerity. From the heights of nirvana to the depths of utter despair, her difficult life’s circumstances become openings for wisdom, love, gratefulness and embodiment. Edge of Grace is a teaching story that shapes itself within the heart of one woman who has been surrendered by life and discovers the innate beauty and intelligence therein.”

—Gloriji Agrelius, Shamanic Energy Medicine Woman, Gloriji.com 

“My Mom took the book from me. She can’t put it down. We love it!”

Sophie Wingerd, Grass Valley, CA

Edge of Grace is so good! So readable, so vivid, such a page-turner. You won’t be able to put it down!”

—Dr. Seth Roberts, Houston, Texas

Powerfully life affirming.  A remarkable journey of the human spirit meeting life as it is rather than it was hoped to be. With vivid imagery, Prajna invites us intimately into her life with its immense challenges. All emotions are laid bare, anger, fear, frustration, despair as well as exhaustion before the relentlessness of a life seeming determined to defeat her. In this struggle, a fierce love for her children and a powerful determination to protect and nurture them brings forth resources she had forgotten she had. She finds a resiliency and ability to step out of the painful story of her circumstances. There are moments of joy and celebration with her family that are delightful.

Prajna teaches us that in the present moment outside the story of our lives, deep love and well being can flourish. There is no end to this story. Life continues. It is not the serene life of the Buddha in the cave. Life can be confusing, complex, and challenging. It can trigger all kinds of feelings and emotions. Prajna’s story teaches us not a spirituality where all pain or struggle are gone but one where life as a whole is held as one in love. Prajna shares with us that we all have within us a place of refuge deep in our heart that we can discover, rest in, and draw strength from to meet the world.”

—Norman Scrimshaw, Co-founder of AwakeningtotheHeart.com

“I read Edge of Grace in three nights. It is filled with inspiration, great joy, devastation, courage, determination, insight and wisdom. The authenticity of Prajna’s story shines through in a way that touches the soul.”

—Dena Sharrock, Anthropologist, Newcastle, NSW, Australia 

“I loved Edge of Grace. The story itself touched into some deep places inside, being a mom of twins too, but the way it is written with authenticity and reverence for this life has made it a book, a woman, a journey I will not forget. I am deeply grateful for the encouragement I receive reading this generous story…”

—Nat Marcella, Stellenbosch, Western Cap

Oh what precious medicine your book is.”

—Olivia Hearly, Santa Cruz, CA

“Prajna’s riveting account of her path through life’s greatest challenges simultaneously broke and healed my heart. It reminds me of the quote: ‘What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open.’ Prajna’s telling of her truth is such a blessing to each reader, and the world.”
